 In the Sleep Centre, they fitted me up with a portable electro-encephalograph, a device that measures brain wave activity. Then, feeling slightly ridiculous, I went home and had my seven-and-a-half hours of sleep.

在睡眠中心, 他们给我配备了一台测量脑波活动的仪器——脑电图便携式记录仪。然后我就回家开始我七个半小时的睡眠,总感觉有点可笑。

Back at the University of Surrey our sleep volunteers had finished their second week of the experiment. What we wanted to see was the effect switching from six-and-a-half hours to seven-and-a-half hours, or vice versa, would have on our volunteers.

我们的睡眠志愿者完成了第二周的试验,回到了萨里大学。我们十分想知道,睡眠时间由六个班小时增加到七个半小时或由七个半小时减少到六个班小时,对志愿者有什么影响。

Computer tests revealed that most of them struggled with mental agility tasks when they had less sleep, but the most interesting results came from the blood tests that were run.

电脑测试显示,当他们睡眠较少时,心理敏捷性会受到影响。但最有意思的结果来自我们所做的血液测试。

Dr Simon Archer and his team at Surrey University were particularly interested in looking at the genes that were switched on or off in our volunteers by changes in the amount that we had made them sleep.

西蒙博士和他在萨里大学的团队对于观察志愿者们的基因十分感兴趣。 当我们让他们睡眠改变睡眠时间时,他们的基因也会发生开启会关闭的变化。

"We found that overall there were around 500 genes that were affected," Archer explained. "Some which were going up, and some which were going down."

“我们发现大约有500个基因受到到了影响,一些正在上升,一些正在下降”阿彻解释道。
